Book Review: Beat Sugar Addiction Now.

The good news is that you can still have sugar- just in very small amounts. And, dark chocolate in 1-3 ounce servings is okay, according to Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D. The bad news is that there are WAY WAY TOO many diseases caused by excess sugar consumption. This book breaks down sugar addicts into 4 types: Type 1, “Sugar, The Energy Loan Shark”, Type 2 “Feed Me Now or I’ll Kill You”, Type 3, The Happy Ho Hunter, or Type 4, “Depressed and Craving Carbs.”

I admittedly am the “Sugar the Loan Shark” mommy. When I feel stressed, tired, sleep deprived or frustrated, I will turn to sugar or coffee. The author offers reasonable solutions for all types of sugar additions. Included with the solutions are a prescription for wellness- that includes supplements such as magnesium, powdered vitamins and herbs.  For those of us who are Type 1, the solution includes adequate sleep, hormonal support, Infections, Nutritional Support and Exercise.

On the food, the solution for all sugar addicts is to obviously REDUCE your sugar intake and eat a variety of fruits, vegetables and meats that are low on the glycemic index scale.    Sounds very similiar to the ZONE diet or the Paleo Diet or the Primal Blueprint diet…Eat fruits, vegetables, nuts, and high-quality meat sources, organic, if possible, and this will cure most of our health problems.

If you have the opportunity to read, Beat Sugar Addiction Now, I can definitely recommend.  I found the supplement suggestions interesting and worth reading more about.

Anybody read this book yet? Thoughts?
